McAfee Device Control protects your data from falling into the wrong hands via removable storage devices and media, such as USB drives, MP3 players, CDs, and DVDs. It enables you to specify and categorize which devices may or may not be used and enforce what data can and cannot be transferred to these devices — in the office, at home, or on the move. Device Control provides content- and context-aware, device-blocking capabilities such as:
Comprehensive device and data management — Control how users copy data to USB drives, iPods, recordable CDs and DVDs, Bluetooth and infrared devices, imaging equipment, COM and LPT ports, and more.
Granular controls — Specify which devices can and can’t be used, define what data can and can’t be copied onto allowed devices, and restrict users from copying data from specific locations and applications.
Centralized management — Centrally define, deploy, manage, and update security policies and agents throughout your enterprise. Set device and data policies by user, group, or department.
Advanced reporting and auditing capabilities — Support compliance with detailed user- and device-level logging. Gather details such as device, time stamp, and data evidence for prompt and proper audits.
Gain visibility and manage what and how users copy valuable company data to removable media.
Monitor and regulate (with granular controls) how your employees transfer data to removable media, such as USB drives, MP3 players, CDs, DVDs, and Bluetooth devices — even when users are not connected to the corporate network.
Specify detailed hardware- and content-based filtering, monitoring, and blocking of confidential data on any removable storage device. Ensure that employees continue to use allowed devices safely.
Use the centralized McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) console to implement and enforce security policies that prevent confidential data from leaving the company’s control and being lost or stolen.
Monitor real-time events and generate detailed reports that show auditors, senior management, and other stakeholders your compliance with internal and regulatory privacy requirements.
